TitleFingerprinting of Proteins that Mediate Quagga Mussel Adhesion using a De Novo Assembled Foot Transcriptome
Study TypeOther
Abstract The European freshwater mollusk Dreissena bugensis (quagga mussel), an invasive species to North America, adheres to surfaces underwater via the byssus, a non-living protein anchor. Next-generation RNA sequencing and de novo assembly was used to construct a cDNA library of the quagga mussel foot tra .. [more]
